Why CAP Works
The innovative CAP (College Action Plan) SystemTM Toolkit works because it is the first digital D-I-Y College Planning System that steps students and parents through complex process of planning for college. See these real life Case Studies (PDF) to learn how this System is changing the financial lives of college-bound families today.
College Planning is so much more than comparing financial aid packages or completing the FAFSA application. It’s understanding that a true College Action Plan is a series of decisions – each with its own cost – that leads to the ultimate goal: A great job offer!
Unfortunately, college sites fail to guide students and parents through the tough questions … or take them to specific sites to find the right answers! Nor are they focused on helping students be better prepared for the job market.
This disconnect has led to the dramatic new college-related financial problems millions of families face today (highlighted below).
LFE’s turn-key CAP SystemTM is designed to prevent these problems as families navigate new post-COVID challenges in an ever-changing college landscape. With instant access to the latest tools and resources, families make more informed decisions, minimize future debt, and accomplish specific bottom-line outcomes no other program can achieve.
The CAP Outcome: A specific College Action Plan students can follow throughout their academic lives to help ensure an amazing job offer upon graduation so they’ll earn enough to repay their student loan debt!
CAP is designed to help more students graduate in 4 years or less!
